3. Press Add Source.

2. Using Real Debrid with Ghost
Ghost requires a premium account from Real Debrid, Premiumize, All Debrid, EasyNews, or Furk to function properly.
File hosting sites often limit file availability and bandwidth for free users. Using premium accounts gives you unrestricted access to several file hosters and cached torrents, it can greatly improve the quality and quantity of available sources.
In this example, we’ll use Real Debrid. A popular service to get unrestricted access to various file hosters and cached torrents for a very low price.
Before starting, we recommend logging into your Real Debrid account using a web browser.
1. Open Ghost and select Settings.
2. On the Debrid tab, make sure Choose debrid service is set to Real-Debrid and press Re-auth Real-Debrid.
3. Copy the authorization code.
4. Use a web browser to visit https://real-debrid.com/device/ and enter the authorization code. (You must be logged in with your Real Debrid account).
5. Set the name for the connection, write Ghost and press Set that name.
All done! You’re now ready to use Ghost. Navigate the add-on’s main menu to select a movie or TV show.
Once you made your choice, Ghost will show you a list of available sources, pick one to start playing.
6. You’ll see a selectable list of available sources before playing a movie or episode.
Ghost has a subtitles feature but if you need more control over the subtitles selection process please read How to enable subtitles on Kodi.
